The easiest, most delicious and nutritious orange pasta sauce with 4 hidden vegetables is here waiting for you to try it.

After the red sauce and the white sauce with the hidden vegetables I've made for you before, I thought I'd make an orange sauce to go with your pasta.

To make it you will need carrots, red peppers, onion and cauliflower. If you want you can add garlic and the 4 vegetables become 5.

The result is amazing and you can even save the leftover sauce in the freezer to have it ready for next time.

Tips and Substitutions

Instead of coconut milk, you can put in your recipe some almond milk or even regular milk if you are not vegan.

Instead of grated vegan cheese you can use nutritional yeast or cheese of your choice if you are not vegan.

Start by adding 1/4 cup water from the cooked pasta and see if your sauce needs more to be moderately thick and not too thick like a soup.
